Ask for Jacob.
If you do go to Ideal Coatings, make sure that you do a THOROUGH inspection before you leave to ensure that the whole frame is coated. I had a frame of mine done there in a beautiful deep, metallic blue, but after I got home and inspected real closely on the bottom side of the top tube/seat tube/seat stay junction, there was about a 3/4" gap of zero coating. Since I live a couple of hours away, just dropping by to have it touched up was out of the question, so I went to an Auto dealer and came up with a touch-up paint to cover the bare areas. Also, I found that Jacob is difficult to get a hold of and does not return calls very promptly. Nice guy though, but I won't be back...I would rather pay more money for better service, I found that I got what I paid for.
